XFX Double D Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition DirectX 11 FX-787A-CDFC 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Runs cool ... not above 60C with the fans at 50% or less - clocked at 1100/1300 with AfterBurner. Registration for lifetime warranty was quick and painless. Rebate card arrived, as promised, in 5-6 weeks. The video card is quiet and well-built. Aluminum housing looks great with my Lascala LC13 case

Cons: None

Price went up -- I'm too frugal to buy second card for CrossFire -- hehheh. HD7950 is now the same price. Mounts on top made it tough to cover cables with wire loom (I'm needlessly whining and complaining ...) but a few well-placed cuts with a utility knife on the loom made a clean joint/bend.

Other Thoughts: I'll wait XFX out on that second card ;) C'mon, XFX, cut that price!

ASRock FM2A75M-ITX FM2 AMD A75 (Hudson D3) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: My motherboard has not caught on fire.

Cons: Cannot load AHCI driver to install Windows.

Other Thoughts: The AsRock support forum is at OC Workbench. In order to establish an account, I have to answer the question, "What is the name of the famous horse dance style known as ?" Yeah. Right. Could a question be more obtuse? To open a support ticket and contact AsRock, you have to fill out an intrusive and exhaustive form that includes your phone number. Their response? "For technical issue and emergency case, we suggest you to contact your dealer first." Thanks for nothing, AsRock.

Zotac ZBOXNANO-AD10-U AMD A50M (Hudson M1) 1 x 204Pin SO-DIMM AMD Radeon HD 6310 Mini / Booksize Barebone System
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Folks with playback issues should verify installation of the AMD Media Codec Package (sometimes called 'Avivo'), and check that AMD *UVD* (Universal Video Decoder) is enabled in your media players.

This should address your playback issues except with Silverlight. which is getting better but still not utilizing the UVD HW acceleration.

Cons: None
